Affordable Housing Investments

In an effort to increase and preserve the supply of affordable housing units across Ramsey County, Community & Economic Development opened competitive housing solicitations in 2021 and 2022 using a simplified, one-door approach for developers to access and obtain funding from a variety of local and federal sources. Applications were evaluated based on project and financial feasibility, unit affordability, organizational capacity and alignment with Ramsey County's strategic priorities

Multifamily Housing

In December 2021, the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners approved four projects through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding source. Of the four projects, three are able to move forward with their development plans.
